From Dustin Reviews
The Wrong Side of the Tracks was one of those remarkable reads thatsucked this reader right out of the real world and into Wells fictional story book universe. When one finds such a read, it's magical. From the first paragraph, I was reminded of the 1986 American dramatic film: Stand By Me, directed by Rob Reiner. Based on the novella The Body by Stephen King which starred Wil Wheaton, River Phoenix, Corey Feldman and others. Reading The Wrong Side of the Tracks was like visiting old friends that I hadn't seen in years. Although Stephen King's and Mike Wells stories are quite different, they share a similar overall feel. Wells brought the teenage (main) characters to life in a way that I felt I was actually part of the story itself, although I was a silent observer. Wells descriptions and dialogue are spot on and weaves a very realistic and believable story. The Wrong Side of the Tracks holds true to Wells reputation as a writer of 'unputdownable' novels.

    Highly Recommended

    I just love all of Mike Wells books. This book was very good. It kept you in suspense all of the time. I enjoyed it so much that I couldn't put it down and also purchased Book 2. It was fantastic.

    I really enjoyed this short book. I have read other books by this author and it is nice to see he writes different types of books. I thought the characters were well developed. I enjoyed the turmoil with Ben and Stephen. Friendships are not always simple. Loved the train detective chasing after Ben, funny. I will definitely be reading the next book so I can find out what I think might happen with Stephen. Great writing once again Mr. Wells.
